Serial Number: 425798
Tech Notes: Currently, set up with round wound strings and medium-low action. The truss rod functions properly, though the neck does sight with a very slight swoop near the tongue. This is common among this era of Fender Jazz Bass. Regardless, the bass sets up well with the current action set. The frets are wide and low showing only light play wear. -- The electronics and serial number date this Fender from 1973.
